It’s always fun to sew something you can use!  Kids will rock their new one-of-a-kind tote bag!  Using a lightweight canvas, students will sew either an adorable dinosaur bag or a cute flamingo bag.  These bags will be great for trips to the library or helping them stay organized. After learning how to operate a sewing machine, kids will use their machine to zig-zag around their dinosaur or flamingo applique, stitch down their handles, sew a lining, box their corners and finish the bag using a simple tote bag construction method.
